    If I’m not staying at one of the Disney Resorts can’t I still visit the resorts and eat at the restaurants?

    Hi Adrianna!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. One of the amazing things about Walt Disney World Resort is the incredible variety of theming that you will find in the theme parks and at the Disney Resort hotels. In fact, one of the most difficult parts of vacation planning for me is picking which Disney Resort hotel we want to be "home" for our vacation. But the great thing is that all Guests are welcome to enjoy the atmosphere, restaurants and shopping at the Disney Resort hotels, even if they do not have a hotel reservation!

    So you definitely want to plan to visit some of the Disney Resort hotels during your trip. Keep in mind that the pools at Disney Resort hotels are reserved for Guests with reservations at that hotel, but beyond that the Disney Resort hotels have a lot of fun to offer all Guests! Disney's Polynesian Village Resort is always on my family's "must-do" list because we love to enjoy the fantastic restaurants, get a Dole Whip and visit some of their shops to pick up souvenEARs. I also recommend that you take a trip to the Disney BoardWalk, where you can visit Disney's BoardWalk Inn, Disney's Beach Club Resort and Disney's Yacht Club Resort. Each of these beautiful hotels has unique theming, but they all fit together perfectly on Disney's BoardWalk. Finally, Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge - Jambo House is absolutely breathtaking. Once you get past the incredible lobby, you can enjoy the amazing restaurants and visit the animals on the Savannah!

    Please let us know if you have additional questions as you continue planning your vacation. T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
